Take This Job and....Relocate it

Teacher Eric Hamlin was suspended from his post as a Denver geography teacher due to his refusal to remove Mexican and Chinese flags from his classroom. In Denver, there's a regulation against flying foreign flags in school.

He was then offered the opportunity to return, along with an offer to display foreign flags for up to 12 weeks at a time. Hamlin has declined the offer, opting to stay in the district, but choosing to serve in another school. He feels his continued presence could be a distraction, due to all the publicity he's received.

What do you think about this teacher's actions, or the proposed compromise?
